Technical problems continue to plague the fledging Reform Party's nominating process: Presidential candidate Richard D. Lamm finally got his ballot--more than a week after most were mailed. And the leader of the party's New York wing complained Thursday of "major discrepancies" in balloting in her state. New York state could be an important source of voting strength for Lamm, the former Colorado governor, in his battle against Texas billionaire Ross Perot for the new party's nomination.

Their styles differed dramatically, but their broad themes were basically the same--slash government, balance the budget and do away with politics as usual--as Ross Perot and Richard D. Lamm each made a case Sunday to be the new Reform Party's 1996 presidential nominee. Although Lamm received a respectful and at times enthusiastic reception, Perot clearly was the favorite of those who attended the nationally televised speeches at the Long Beach Convention Center.

Gov. Richard D. Lamm, who has said terminally ill people have "a duty to die," says giving expensive, heroic medical treatment to AIDS victims is inappropriate because the disease is always fatal. "There are two types of AIDS patients," he told doctors and nurses Wednesday during a discussion at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center on rising health-care costs. "Either you're 'dying' or you're 'dead'," Lamm said.

Lamm cast his lot with the Reform Party of Texas billionaire Ross Perot, telling a television audience in Denver that "I have crossed the Rubicon" from doing politics as a Democrat.

Former Colorado Gov. Richard D. Lamm challenged Texas billionaire Ross Perot for the leadership of Perot's Reform Party on Tuesday by announcing his candidacy for the party's presidential nomination and promising a crusade for "reform and renewal" in America. If Lamm, 60, were to gain the party's nomination--a difficult task since Perot has offered no indication so far that he is prepared to give it away--he would inject a significantly new note into the 1996 campaign.

Former Colorado Gov. Richard D. Lamm will almost certainly announce in coming days that he will run for president as a candidate in Ross Perot's Reform Party, a close advisor said Wednesday. Mark Sturdevant, a confidant of Lamm's and vice chairman of the Reform Party of California, said that after discussions with Lamm, he was "95% certain [Lamm] is going to do this. Something could change, but I doubt that it will."

Reform Party presidential contender Richard D. Lamm on Monday accused Ross Perot of skewing the party's nominating process in his own favor and argued that the political movement started by the Texas billionaire needs to replace him if it is to thrive. Campaigning in Northern California with his newly chosen running mate, former U.S. Rep. Ed Zschau of Los Altos, Lamm said he does not think Perot is trying "to steal this election."

Richard D. Lamm had grand visions of raising the level of civic debate with a "no BS agenda" as he sought the presidential nomination of Ross Perot's Reform Party. But in the two-plus weeks since Lamm announced his candidacy, the 60-year-old former Democratic governor of Colorado has become increasingly disillusioned about what it means to take on Perot in the party the prickly billionaire founded and bankrolled.

Just in case he had any illusions, former Colorado Gov. Richard D. Lamm was reminded Saturday of how stiff a challenge he faces in unseating Ross Perot for the presidential nomination of the Reform Party founded by the Texas billionaire. When Perot entered an auditorium here Saturday morning, several hundred local Reform Party activists erupted in whoops and applause--a sharp contrast to the respectful silence that greeted much of Lamm's speech earlier in the day.

Richard D. Lamm--a presidential hopeful who announced Tuesday that he'll seek the Reform Party's nomination--supports a controversial plan to fix the nation's ailing Social Security system. Although Lamm is a dark-horse candidate unlikely to win the nation's top job, the Social Security reform at the heart of his candidacy is likely to generate attention and national debate.

Ross Perot declared Wednesday that he remains in the race for the nomination of the Reform Party he founded--dealing a potentially fatal blow to the day-old campaign of the party's other announced presidential candidate, former Colorado Gov.

"If the people want me to, certainly, I think it's pretty obvious now, I am dedicated to this country," Perot told CNN's Larry King in response to questions about whether he would run.
